I loved it. It was not as good as some of Sword Art Online's other story arcs but definitely worth seeing.
The following comments are to put into context some of the comments by reviewers who missed the earlier story arcs.
We see a more mature, career oriented Kirito in Ordinal Scale. It is a consistent progression of the character development in earlier story arcs.
It may not be the last Sword Art Online story arc as there were teasers that left it open for more to come.
